    Default Parent Memorial Quilt

    Here is the memorial quilt that I have been working on for over a year (just kept putting it off). I finally got the top put together. Let me know what you think. The first picture is the whole quilt (wall hanging) the remaining pictures are each individual blocks made of pictures of my parents. The one block is a word search puzzle that says "Naomi Myrtle Skaggs Loves Seek and Find Puzzles"

    Rhonda, I am truly in awe and impressed. What a wonderful tribute you have created. This is one that I would love to see up close and personal. I think it the best memory quilt I've seen. Congratulations - great work there!!

    Rhonda, I saw the pillow you made for Marilyn last year, it was so beautiful! Now this wonderful tribute to your parents, it's another loving and beautifully done tribute!

    I have a technical question for you. What type product do you use to transfer your pictures to the fabric? I've seen the fabric you print on, and the paper you make a transfer with. Which, if either of these, do you use? You certainly have mastered the process.

    I agree, you have done an outstanding job and it will look lovely in your parents home. It looks like a scrapbook made with fabric. I love it.
